first the afghanistan worked with military forces on the ground in afghanistan. in lbds, the u.s. is stilg ruling out ground troops. second, in afghanistan, the cia provided weapons to the opposition forces that were there fighting the taliban. so far in libya, the u.s. is not saying we are doing that. the u.s. is not saying we are arming the rebels, but as i understand it, this presidential finding if it has happened would be the kind of instrument that president obama would use to authorize something like arming the rebels. again, i am not totally clear on what the presidential finding would mean if there is one, and since we don't know for a fact there definitely was one, it is hard to say exactly what its terms are. that's one of the things we are going to try to figure out with michael isikoff from nbc in a moment. what we know about the legality of this, presidential findings have been around for decades, presidents using them for covert operations have to notify the top democrat and republican in the house and senate, as well as top democrat and republican on the intellige

. that is not a current picture, but it gives you an idea that he has been targeted in the past and us military officials say to fox that this time, this was not an american air strike, however, it could have left the door open, all of the fire power that has been in the air there, could have left the door open for a number of people to have targeted that residence, chug france or britain perhaps and for the second consecutive night, the united states britain and dance, launching jet bombers and cruise missiles inside of libya. the pentagon is leading the aand the top brass seem to be pleased, more in a moment. muammar gaddafi is vowing a war and coalition of rebels in his country and the casualties are mounting, a spokesperson for the rebels reportedly claimed that 8,000 libyans aligned with the revolt have died since the recent violence there began. we have team coverage for you now, jennifer griffith from the pentagon. let's start though with steve harrigan live in tripoli with the latest. you and your producer, you were able to see through that producer's story telling exactly what this residence loo
, but it is controlled, so it does not produce an explosion. it just generates heat in a controlled way instead. use that heat to essentially boil water. actually, you literally use it to boil water. boiling water makes steam, steam spins a turbine, and that makes electricity. that's the basic idea behind the 40-year-old reactors in japan in so much trouble now. when the reactor is on, in effect, the uranium pellets inside the big 12 foot long fuel rods are involved in a nuclear chain reaction generating heat. when they shut off the reactor in the normal course of events or because of something like an earthquake, they stop that nuclear reaction. now, in order to stop the nuclear reaction to do that, they move a bunch of control rods in among the fuel rods. the control rods stop the nuclear reaction from happening in an orderly way. i don't know if you ever had the chance to develop a photo in a dark room before everything went digital. you know how you put the photo, or may have seen it in a movie, somebody working with an actual -- with actual film and developing chemicals in an actual dark room.
